Support to Montenegro's Transport System

The European Commission approved yesterday 13,5 million euro for Montenegro to support its transport system in terms of quality, efficiency and safety. One component will finance the reconstruction of a joint rail border crossing point between Montenegro and Serbia. As a result, trains will need to stop only once for customs and border controls and the time spent at the border will be cut in half (from 60 minutes to 30 minutes). The funding will also support the overall capacities for accession negotiations, transposition of the acquis and implementation of EU policies.
